Fraserburgh situated on Kinnairds Head, the castle, converted into a lighthouse, forms the pivot around which Fraserburgh is built.

Kinnairds was the ‘hill of watch’ from which, the 7th Laird of Philorth, kept an eye on his creation. ‘Whereas,’ says the charter granted in 1546, Alexander Fraser of Philorth, for the convenience of his neighbours has built a harbour upon the seashore in which ships overtaken by storms may be able to find refuge, we erect the town of Faithlie into a free burgh of barony.

At that time there was no castle, It was built by his grandson soon after he succeeded to the barony in 1569, when he continued the work of town building with the erection of public buildings and fine streets. Fraserburgh offers a good cross section of holiday accommodation for the visitor to select these include Hotels, Guest-Houses B&B and self-catering to enjoy as your holiday base.
